Art is stronger than Coronavirus: #istayhome and visit museums

Category:

Admire the most prestigious works of art and collections in the world by respecting the rules that the coronavirus emergency imposes on us.

An act of responsibility that allows us to visit nine museums that offer free virtual tours waiting to return to immerse themselves in the artistic wonders in person.

The Egyptian Museum of Turin breaks the isolation both on the internet and on social media. From the site you can visit the renovated rooms. While on Facebook the director Christian Greco leads video tours to tell the objects of the prestigious collection, promoting the hashtag #LaCulturaCura.

In Milan, the Pinacoteca Brera allows you to admire the masterpieces of world art history up close, thanks to a very high definition digitalization campaign to allow an approach to the originals that goes beyond what the human eye perceives.

The Uffizi Gallery in Florence also offers Ipervisioni: high-definition images of the masterpieces of virtual exhibitions, from Botticelli to Cimabue.

It will seem to be right in Paris thanks to the virtual tours of the Louvre, which offers a 360-degree view not only of the museum’s exhibition halls and galleries, but also of the square and the external facade of the museum, including its famous glass pyramid.

The British Museum in London has about eight million objects in its collection, half of which are visible in the online database: an art rundown divided by themes and eras, to discover the fascinating history that holds each work.

The Prado Museum in Madrid has decided to implement its virtual presence on the occasion of the closures due to the coronavirus emergency. The museum’s works and artists will also be shown in the form of a multi-level timeline, managed by artificial intelligence while the collection is told and described by the director, Miguel Falomir.

Thanks to the Google Art Project, the Moma collection, the Metropolitan Museum in New York, has been digitized and can be visited just like a multimedia gallery. The algorithms developed by Google have made it possible to examine and label not only the works of art but also the photographs and digital works exhibited in the New York gallery. An incredible barrier-free vehicle that allows you to explore the 60 best museums in the world also through Street View.
